Geek Needed ...

I know I have an Italian IP address now ... and that I live here and all ... but I really need to find a way to make Google and Yahoo  and every other thing on my computer stay in English. Really. My Italian is bad at best and while I am trying to improve it this is not helping ... it's like that version of Word that used to guess what you wanted to write while you were typing and then didn't want to admit it was wrong. I need less help that way.
But Italy is every bit as amazing as I thought it would be. A few weeks ago I toured the castle town of Valvasone. They have been renovating the castle for twelve years and today they were able to allow people in to see the "Gaming Room".  Here is what it looked like in the town while I was there:
And then we toured the two Churches there which are famous for their frescos:

And then we had an amazing lunch ... for about 2 1/2 hours. LOL

The internet here is hellish ... but if I can, I will write again tomorrow about my trip to Venice. I will say that I am finding some amazing inspiration for new yarn colours and can hardly wait for my things to get here. In about 2 weeks I should be able to get back up and running ... I'll keep you posted.

I hear the door lock ...
Then the rattling of paper
The scratching of lead.

I guess we don't realise how much we depend on our internet connection until we have problems!! Still, it looks as if you have super things to see and do to make up for the minor irritations!!

I have the same problem!
for google - make sure it is google.com in your browser address bar
if it doesn't come up .com right below the search window to the right click on go to google.com

the same is probably true for yahoo

I cannot get the english page of vogue.com up! you are right it has to do with the ip
if you figure it out let me know!
